Dental Sealant Longevity

Posted .

Dental sealants are a great way to battle off cavities and tooth breakdown in your molars. They are a good investment that will take your dental health a long way. But how long exactly? To answer that, we have amassed this post for you on the longevity of oral sealants. Read on if you’d like to find out additional information.

Oral sealants are regularly applied in a process that ensures high-quality outcomes. The dentist may clean the pearly whites, apply an oral sealant gel, eliminate surplus gel, re-clean the pearly whites and seal the gel with a light to apply dental sealants to your teeth. This service has been shown to bond the dental sealant to chompers well, and when it’s over appropriately, oral sealants last for a very long amount of time.

However, bacteria are ruthless on pearly whites, and the dental sealants guarding your molars will take the bulk of that destruction. When they do, they are slowly worn down. Across years, the dental sealant may be broken down to the point where it needs to be reapplied. Your dental staff will inspect the condition of your oral sealants during your routine appointments and endorse reapplication when the oral sealant needs to be replaced.
